Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 2:46 am CDT on October 30, 2014


... Freezing temperatures likely over the weekend...

A strong cold front is expected to move across the quad state
region tonight. Behind the front northwest winds will usher in
the coldest air of the season thus far.

Temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 20s to around 32
degrees over the region starting after midnight Friday night. With
light winds expected to continue through the night, frost
formation will likely be limited to protected areas.

Highs are only expected to top out in the upper 40s Saturday
afternoon... and then bottom out in the upper 20s by early Sunday
morning. Temperatures should once again fall at or below the
freezing mark starting around midnight Saturday night. With winds
expected to be calm during this period... a widespread frost is
likely.

Temperatures this cold will bring an end to the growing season. A
freeze warning will likely be required for all or part of the quad
state region this weekend.

Now is a good time to make plans to bring in or protect any
sensitive plants from the cold this weekend.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
628 am CDT Thu Oct 30 2014 


Short term...(today through Saturday night) 
issued at 305 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Medium to high forecast confidence in the short term. 


Precipitation chances make their way into the northwest third of our 
County Warning Area this afternoon as a sharp short wave diving southeast out of the 
northern plains pushes a surface low and trailing cold front toward 
our region. With moisture still expected to be somewhat limited with 
this feature, precipitation chances should remain rather small. 


Tonight with the passage of said low and front, the deeper moisture 
and precipitation chances will shift to the northeast half of our 
County Warning Area which will generally be along and north of the track of the low. 
Small precipitation chances may linger into Friday over the far 
eastern sections of our County Warning Area on the back side of the system in the 
wrap around moisture. 


Friday night in the wake of the front, high pressure and some of the 
the coldest air (upper 20s to lower 30s) of the season will begin to 
overspread the region. The main limitation for frost late Friday 
night will be gradient wind flow which will inhibit widespread 
frost development. The best frost potential Saturday morning will be 
patchy in protected areas. Even though frost formation is expected 
to be limited, temperatures dipping to at or below freezing by early 
Saturday morning should bring an end to the growing season. 


Temperatures should be even colder late Saturday night as the high 
is forecast to be centered over the region. With winds expected to 
be calm area wide late Saturday night, frost formation should be 
widespread. 


Even with temperatures expected to bottom out at or below freezing 
Friday night and especially Saturday night, for a couple of reasons 
will refrain from issuing any frost/freeze headlines at this time 
and will punt to the day shift. The first reason is that with the 
winds staying up Friday night, there maybe enough shallow mixing to 
bump temperatures up a degree or two, especially over the southern 
half of our County Warning Area. Secondly, Friday night is the 4th period of the 
forecast which pushes the time limits of the definition of a watch 
product. Decided to continue with a strongly worded Special Weather 
Statement to address the upcoming cold snap. 


Long term...(sunday through wednesday) 
issued at 305 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Sunday and Monday should remain dry with an upper level ridge making 
its way across the middle Mississippi and lower Ohio valleys. 
Surface high pressure east of the pah forecast area will give US 
southerly winds beginning on Sunday and lead to a gradual warm up. 
Temperatures will remain well below normal Sunday and Sunday night, 
warming up to near seasonal readings for Monday and Monday night. 


Models show a low pressure system sliding across southern Canada, 
bringing a cold front into the region Monday night into Tuesday. 
GFS is the fastest model spreading precip into and across the fa 
late Monday night into Tuesday night. The latest European model (ecmwf) is trending 
slower than its previous run, and now focuses precip more on Tuesday 
night into early Wednesday. Leaned more toward the more consistent 
timing of the GFS. Continued with chance and slight chance pops for 
our northwest half of counties Monday night, then chance and likely 
pops Tuesday into Tuesday night. Precip chances should taper off 
from northwest to southeast on Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
issued at 628 am CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Will introduce a mid cloud deck for today, with clouds lowering 
toward 4-5k/ft this evening and tonight, and a chance of showers at 
kevv and kowb. Winds will be light through the period.

Pah watches/warnings/advisories... 
Illinois...none. 
MO...none.
